Nanny’s adds color to Summit View

Paula Slaughter, second from left, has been a teacher at Nanny’s Child Care at Fort Sanders West for seven years. She was at Summit View of Farragut nursing home on Friday, Aug. 4, to deliver a stash of artwork. “We do a community service project every summer,” she said.

“Last summer we sold lemonade and cookies and gave the money to the Ronald McDonald House. This year is our art project and 15 Pre-K students did watercolor, acrylic and crayon pictures for the residents of Summit View. The kids did artwork over the summer, knowing they would send one piece of their choice. Their art project had a lot of love in it. They knew this would help brighten their day. The director, Denise

Lane, encourages the children to do art to improve coordination, imagination, creative thinking and spatial skills.” Nanny’s has about 325 children enrolled.
